Can't say about the S10 but I had their full setups on both my V Stroms, crash bars, skid plate and center stand and love them. Always have great protection after many many drops off road never had any major damage to anything, couple scrapes from small stuff no bars can stop. The first set I got was put through the ringer by postal service, the owner of the company answered the phone at 8pm est. Took care of it and personally and called me on the day the new parts arrived to make sure everything was good. They are the first place I check for fitment for what I'm riding. Had a very similar experience with seahorse case and the same level of customer service.

I'm interested in these as well. I'd love to hear a first-hand review about the S10 application specifically.

I went with T Rex Racing crash bars and skid plate combo........500.00 delivered. They look the part and easy to attach Aux lights.
I was waiting for them to be ready, they were supposed to be in by Jan but weren't ready by May so I went with the TRex system. Very happy with it, looks very beefy and offers more protection although there have been a few issues with fit and finish.

I recently bough both the crash bars and the pannier rack. They are robust without being overly heavy. I replaced thier hardware with stainless bolts my preference not nessisary.
If you have or plan to use Arrow headers the crash bar will NOT fit with out modifcation. I ground away a portion of the lower mounting tube and am in the process of tig welding a small piece of 14 guage mild steel to cover the open tube. This has weakened the origanal design slightly but still stronger than the other manufacted one I tore off hitting a deer.

I also went with the T-Rex Racing crash bars and skid plate on my 2016 S10 ES, and am extremely pleased with them. And the side panels AND battery ARE removable without messing with the bars. And I really like the fact that I can get to my oil filter to change it by removing just 2 countersunk head allen screws.

best price i have found for soft panniers solution

I have a similar one from Givi (I think), only had 2 problems with it. I didn't know that the grab bars on the S10 were fastened with a locking hex so had to run back to the parts store to get a specific driver for that. Also, I had issues getting the part off by the exhaust pipe, basically had to go back to the parts store (yes again) and get a ball hex wrench to get it off. Mine also had some spacers in it but I don't remember off the top of my head where they go. The first time I put it on took me about 45 minutes (not including the parts store trips), second time took about 20 minutes, next time will probably be in the 15 minute timeframe so it really is as simple and they point out.
I think I like this one better than the one I have, mine has some rubber mounts on it that makes it look odd.
